Stanford researchers designed a tactile display that aims to make 3D printing and computer-aided design accessible to people who are blind and visually impaired.
To make computer-aided design more accessible to people who are blind and visually impaired, Stanford researchers developed a display that can be paired with 3D design software to quickly produce touchable representations of a user’s work-in-progress.
Diversity has been a core value at Stanford since the university's founding in 1891. That year, Stanford opened its doors to men and women from diverse religious, national, and racial backgrounds in its quest to train useful citizens.
